One year when I was young my mom decided that she wanted us to have a real
traditional Christmas tree. She got my dad to take us to a tree farm where
we selected and cut the perfect tree. When we got home and dad put the tree
up in the living room my mom popped some popcorn and then made my sister and
I make garlands from the popcorn and real cranberries by threading heavy
thread through them with needles. Then we decorated the tree with the usual
lights and ornaments but added these garlands.
That year our tree didn't last very long at all. Some field mice got into
the house and every night they went up into the tree to eat the popcorn and
cranberries and our 2 cats went up into the tree to try to catch them. Our
tree was knocked down 2 nights and totally destroyed within about a week.
Well, at least my mom never made my sister and I make those garlands any
more after that year. We went back to having a more normal Christmas with
non-edible decorations on a real tree.
